Granddad loves Westerns. Mini-series or full-length feature. New or old. Seen or unseen. He loves them all. If John Wayne is in it, well, that’s like hitting the lotto.
So, I can only imagine how disappointed he would be to find out I had to do a Google search when I was contacted to do these cookies. See, the soon-to-arrive baby will be loosely named after the main character, Gus, in Lonesome Dove. (On my behalf, I knew it was a Western. I just didn’t know much after that.)
Cousin Pam (you remember her from this post, right?), who ordered these cookies for a book club friend, wanted to tie-in the name reference with the cookies.
